With the brand name Terralene® FKuR offers biobased polyethylene compounds made using Braskem's Green PE.
When compared to conventional Polyethylene (PE), the main difference is that the ethanol used for Green PE is not produced using crude oil, but instead is derived from sugarcane. Therefore each ton of Green PE captures up to 2.1 tons of CO2 thus helping to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
As Terralene® offers the same characteristics and processability as fossil Polyethylene it is a drop-in replacement and can be run on conventional PE production equipment. This allows Terralene® to help you meet your sustainability goals affordably.
Furthermore, Terralene® is 100% recyclable using standard Polyethylene recycling streams.
With its unique technology FKuR increases the range of applications for Green PE particularly for injection moulded components and film.
